Oceanfront Townhouse in Kihei on the beautiful island of Maui – Totally Renovated


We are the owners of Kihei Akahi A-102, a beautiful upscale Townhouse, steps from Kamaole Beach II in the wonderful and affordable Kihei Akahi development in South Maui, the sunniest area of the Island.

Kihei Akahi consists of 240 units including 8 ocean-front Townhouses. The 8 Townhouses facing the Ocean and in the exclusive 'A' Building, are the absolute best units in the entire Kihei Akahi development. Our unit has 2 walk out lanais (upstairs and main floor) for enhanced outdoor living and to enjoy the spectacular sunsets. At 224 sq. ft. of lanai space, 'A' building Townhouses have considerably more outdoor living space than any of the other 2-bedroom condos at Kihei Akahi which have only 92 sq. ft. of lanai living space.

To give you an idea of the Kihei Akahi complex: there are 240 units consisting of 8 2-bedroom Townhouses of 1,175 sq. ft., ten 2-bedroom apartments of 879 sq. ft. and two high-rise concrete buildings with elevators and semi-remote parking. The 2 concrete high-rises consist of 25 studios at 429 sq. ft., 172 1-bedroom units at 655 sq. ft. and 25 2-bedroom units at 932 sq. ft.

As stated, the 8 Townhouses each have 1,175 sq. ft. of indoor living space. The next largest living space is 932 sq. ft. in each of the 25 2-bedroom units in the concrete high rise building.

Of major importance to most visitors to Maui is the amount of effective outdoor living space available with their rental unit. As mentioned above, the Townhouses each have 2 lanais with a total area of 224 sq. ft. per Townhouse. Lanais at other 2-bedroom units at Kihei Akahi are only 92 sq. ft. In addition, the Townhouses have a large, well maintained, private, and secure, lawn and garden area strictly for ‘A’ building guests. The large lawn area is like your own private yard for activities from family gatherings to a romantic dinner for two. The size of your lanai is very important to most visitors since that is where you will relax, read, suntan, entertain, have cocktails and meals, watch great sunsets and generally enjoy Maui's wonderful climate all in a private area. You are not in a high-rise area facing another high-rise with all the noise and activities from other condos. The benefits of the eight ‘A’ Building Townhouses in the ‘A’ building are numerous.

Our Townhouse has central air conditioning (installed in February, 2016) which covers the entire indoor living space on both floors. There are separate air conditioner remotes for each of the 3 ultra-silent, very efficient units. When the Maui weather is hot and humid (during summer and early autumn), you can be assured of the most peaceful and comfortable existence possible.

Our Townhouse has brand new heavy duty Fleetwood Series 1000 sliding glass doors and solid Duo Pane noise cancelling Low E emulsion full height glass panels (to be installed in April, 2017). All door/glass hardware is stainless steel low profile surrounded by an all-aluminum perimeter frame. The configuration on both floors is identical with a full 6-foot unobstructed opening onto the lanai surrounded by a 3-foot wide, 82” high glass panel on each end. At the moment, we are not aware of any other unit at Kihei Akahi with an unobstructed 6-foot opening to the outside lanais.

Our Townhouse is fully stocked with dishes, cutlery, furniture, appliances, linens, towels and everything you need for your dream vacation in Paradise. In fact, our refrigerator (MRSP $3,850), is perhaps the largest fridge you have ever experienced. It has 2 side-opening doors with 2 full width separate freezer compartments below. The gas range has 5 burners on the cooktop, a warming oven and a large convection oven. The fridge, range, microwave and dishwasher were all purchased new in 2012.

Our Townhouse was totally renovated about 8 years ago during which time we installed solid maple (no MDF) Kraftmaid cabinets in the kitchen and both bathrooms. All cabinets and drawers were refinished in 2016.

The entire Townhouse, including all walls and the main floor ceiling, was repainted with new baseboards in 2015

Electronically, our Townhouse offers the following amenities:

Free High-Speed DSL Wireless Internet (with a backup system in A-101)

Free long-distance telephone service to the US and Canada

Three Smart TVs: 65” in living room, 30” in master bedroom, 30” in guest bedroom

Cable Service: HD, Computer, Netflix, etc. available on all 3 Smart TVs

Central wireless phone system with 3 handsets (includes messaging device)

Fax machine


Kamaole Beach 2, immediately across the road with its fine white sand, has some of the best swimming and snorkeling anywhere. The large crescent shaped, gently sloping fine sand beach with its dunes and tide pool area teem with tropical fish, crabs, starfish, etc. Our Townhouse is located immediately across from Kamaole Beach 2, which, with its ultra-fine white sand and gentle waves/surf, is frequently described as one of the finest beaches on Maui. For your convenience we also include beach towels and folding beach chairs.


Kihei Akahi is one of the most popular and requested condominium complexes in Kihei. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the location cannot be beat. Everything you might need for your holiday is all within walking distance. Many visitors do not use a rental car, however, there is so much to do and see on Maui, we always recommend a rental car. Our Kihei beachfront Townhouse is only steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches and also only steps away from the Kihei Akahi private gated pool, BBQ area and tennis court.

Whether you are planning a romantic getaway for two, the perfect family vacation, or just need a holiday to unwind, our Townhouse is the perfect destination for you.

About Tyler and Andrea

We are Peter & Bev Brill from Calgary, Alberta.

Peter graduated from the University of Toronto in 1965 as a Metallurgical Engineer while Bev graduated as a Registered Nurse from Toronto Western Hospital in 1964.

We were married in 1965 and have 2 grown children and 4 grand children all living in Alberta, Canada

We are both very interested in golf, tennis, hiking, kayaking, cycling, hunting, fishing, traveling and generally anything that keeps us outdoors and active.

We spend our winters in Maui, are very proud of our townhouse. We do not hesitate to do the continual upgrades required to maintain our unit as one of the best, if not the best, units at Kihei Akahi. We have the interest, dedication and resources to keep our townhouse perfectly maintained.

We also provide free wireless Internet as well as free long distance calling to Canada, the US mainland and the other Hawaiian islands.

Tyler and Andrea purchased this townhome in 1977

Why Tyler and Andrea chose Kihei

We purchased our Townhouse in 1977 for the following reasons:

1. Kihei is the sunniest part of Maui.

2. According to locals who we talked to before we made our purchase, Kamaole Beach Park 2, on the ocean immediately across from our unit, was their favorite beach with the finest sand and the gentlest slope. As we were beginning a new family, safety was a prime concern.

3. Kihei Akahi was favorably situated with easy beach access. This was not so for many other condo developments along S. Kihei Rd.

4. Our Townhouse is at the front of the Kihei Akahi development. We look at the ocean, not at other buildings.

5. We have 2 huge lanais (224 sq. ft.) whereas other 2-bedroom units at Kihei Akaki only have 1 small lanai (92 sq. ft.)

6. The 8 Townhouse units in Building 'A' are much larger at 1,175 sq. ft. than any of the other 2-bedroom units at Kihei Akahi which have only 835 sq. ft.

7. Kihei Akahi has excellent amenities right at our back door - pools, BBQs, tennis court, office & most importantly parking. We park 4 steps from our back door which makes unloading groceries & other purchases so easy. We don't have to park remote from our unit which would necessitate a long walk or, in most units, excluding the 8 Townhouses, elevators and several trips.

What makes this townhome unique

We purchased our Townhouse as original owners in 1977 for many of the aforementioned reasons.

Maui is so wonderful, especially for Canadians. It has a currency we can easily obtain, the primary language is English, the medical system is excellent, the police protection is very good (although we have never required such assistance), the things to do are endless and the native Hawaiians are marvelous people.

Before we decided on Maui, we traveled to many desirable locations such as Martinique, Florida, Tahiti to name a few. We quickly decided that 'Maui no ka oi' (Maui is the best).

Great beach property

  • 5 of 5

This is truly one great property, it is literally across the street from the beach. The condo was clean upon arrival and easy to navigate. The staff was very helpful and helped to resolve a parking issue. The owner is very easy to contact, and the condo was surprisingly very well equipped. We loved staying in this place. Kihei is the place to stay in Maui. You are minutes away from anything or any activity that you might want to do.

Repeat adventure

  • 5 of 5

We liked our first time stay here so much, we came back again. This time 2 couples. The location is perfect, the weather was just what we ordered. It’s close to the beach, groceries, restaurants, etc. It has a full kitchen to make meals (our preference), pool for when the trade winds start blowing sand in your face, BBQs that we didn’t have to clean, & designated parking stall right outside. There were Beach & bath towels, 4 beach chairs & an umbrella for the sun. There was one damaged boogie board - so we left a couple brand new ones for use. Last year we had a cooler, no longer there, but left a cooler bag - perfect for the Road to Hana/waterfall picnics etc.

The owners are lovely & even called to answer my many questions... prior to our Costco run on arrival. Great VBRO for a laid back, quiet, make your own food, Happy hours on the lanai... type of vacation. Note. The townhouse has 2 double beds in the front room - may work better for a family vacation with kids or a single vs. Couple - the head board prevents the beds from moving together. And added bonus - all of the beds are good. We will be back again soon.

Lovely townhouse by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained townhouse in a great location. Our only issue was with the air conditioning, which did not seem to lower the room temperature much. It was quite cool at night in Kihei while we were there and this was therefore not a big problem.

Great property, lots of room. Couldn't of asked for anything better.

  • 5 of 5

The unit and the whole complex are spotless, fantastic place to stay. Beach right across the street and restaurants so close. It was so nice to have 2 lanai's. Allowed us to have lots of people over to visit without feeling crowded. Everything you can want or need is provided in the unit, very thoughtfully put together. Would definitely recommend and book again.

Great location on Kamaole Beach II

  • 3 of 5

This condo is suitable for beach lovers, only a very short walk across the road to the best beach in Kihei. Very clean. It is a little dated and needs some maintenance, but overall we enjoyed our stay and found what we needed. Would be nice to have a few beach toys and new boogie boards. Other properties we've stayed at have also had more in the way of supplies, usually left over from previous renters. The basics were appreciated (soap and some paper products). The BBQ and pool area are very clean & well-maintained. Tennis racquets & balls are available free from the Office.

Comfortable Condo

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for 5 days. It was big and roomy which is what I wanted. It was me and my friend and we each had our own room. My room had a king sized bed which was really comfortable. My friend's room had 2 twins and she said that they were comfortable too. The living room furniture was a little dated and lumpy. When we got to the condo it was so hot inside and it took us a while to figure our the air conditioning system. I didn't like that it was on a timer and you have to restart it every 6 hours. I woke up at 4:00 am every day because I was sweating and had to run downstairs to restart the air. This feature is why I gave it a 3 star. It was annoying having to do this but without the air, it would have been too hot to use the upstairs. Everything else worked properly. The kitchen was well stocked which we didn't use but the only thing we did want to use (coffee maker) there were no filters so the very first thing I did was to make a run to the market (I think coffee filters should be provided - I left a big stack so they are there now). One of the 4 beach chairs was broken so make sure you look at it before you take off to the beach. We liked that is next door to Moose's and Fred's which is nice for a quick bite. Kamaole Beach 2 is right across the street and it is a great beach. We spent most of our time there. This was not the nicest condo that I have rented through vrbo, nor was it the worst. It was average. PS - The women in the front office were kind of rude and unfriendly.

Kihei Akahi, A-102
Car: recommended

Kihei is commonly known as the sunniest area in Maui. It is common to meet Maui vacationers from Kapalua, Napili, Ka'anapali, Lahaina and Ma'alea and other 'northern Maui vacation areas spending time in Kihei/Wailea to avoid the winds and more frequent rain in the north of the Island.

Kihei Akahi is located just north of expensive Wailea and offers vacationers the best odds of maximum sunshine and minimum rain (and usually less winds). The normal trade winds on Maui blow from the northeast and frequently the Kihei/Wailea area experiences the best weather on Maui.

Kamaole Beach 2 is one of the finest beaches on Maui with fine sand, gradual entry, good snorkeling, ocean swimming, fishing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, everything to provide the best ocean activities on Maui within a few steps.

Kamaole Beach 2 is a 'crescent' beach with fine sand and lies between Kamaole Beaches 1 and 3. This is really 'the place to be'!

Restaurants and shopping are right next door.

Although advisable, and recommended, a car is not necessary.

Kihei Akahi has 240 units with 8 deluxe Townhouses (the absolute best units) across the front facing an unobstructed ocean view immediately over South Kihei Rd.

There are 2 pools, 2 BBQ areas, tennis and beautiful gardens on the property.

Kihei Akahi is about 1/2 mile north of Wailea and our 3 Townhouses offer the best vacation experiences so near to Wailea but at Kihei prices.

Maui is a marvellous vacation destination with an unlimited variety of activities. Hiking is world class, restaurants are world class and Wailea is about 1/2 mile down South Kihei Road. Golf, tennis, swimming - you name it - it is within a reasonable distance. Almost any activity that you could imagine is available nearby.

Each of our 3 Townhouses in Kihei Akahi are unquestionably the best units in Kihei Akahi. They each have 1,175 sq. ft. of indoor living space, two large exterior decks (lanais) totalling an additional 224 sq. ft. They are the largest units in Kihei Akahi by both indoor and outdoor living space.

All 3 of our Townhouses have Fujitsu central air conditioning which is a rarity, indeed, in the Kihei area. Each of the 2 upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs living area have separate air conditioning units with their own respective controls.

There is a private lawn fronting the 8 townhouses with an unobstructed view across South Kihei Road directly to Kamaole Beach 2 and the ocean.

Private parking is right behind each Townhouse eliminating elevators and long treks with your groceries and shopping treasures. You will definitely appreciate this benefit.

The South Maui Coastal Walk is wonderful for your daily walk/jog and runs for several miles along the ocean coast from the Polo Beach Club in Wailea, past the world class Wailea Hotels, through the Kamaole beaches in Kihei up to Kalama Park in central Kihei and beyond.

We are very proud of our 3 Townhouses and will continue to provide the very best units possible.

Our reputation is extremely important to us and we intend to do everything possible to maintain our top reputation.

We appreciate your taking the time to view our Website and, if you have any questions whatsoever, please contact us directly.

Thank you.
